Osco Company manufactures men’s shirts. The standard is to apply 8 buttons to each button down shirt and 2 yards of fabric to each shirt. Angela, the cutting- and assembly-tailor, used 1.85 yards of fabric to cut the fabric and sew each shirt.
After the shirts leave Angela’s department. they go to Jim’s department. Jim, the button-tailor that sews the buttons on the shirt, actually applied, on average, 9 buttons to each button down shirt.
Based on this information, should Osco Company fire Jim?
